. and the president taking credit for positive economic aiders. and what will january's looming tax increases do to those signs of life? and a measure on the ballot in michigan could hand unions their biggest victory in years. will they make collective bargaining a constitutional right? >> welcome to "the journal editorial report." wifeless than two weeks to go, president obama and mitt romney hit the campaign trail in florida, ohio, wisconsin, colorado, and virginia. polls continue to show the race in a dead heat nationally, and too close to call, in no fewer than ten swing states but the obama campaign and its media allies are questioning whether mitt romney's recent momentum is real. joining the panel his week, dan henning gary, james freeman, dorothy rabinowitz and kim strassel. kim, tell us how real the romney surge is. >> look, paul, i know two weeks is one side increasing its advantage in both the national polls and the swing state polls. that's romney. we have seen money flowing into that side. that's romney. we have seen him improve his performance in independents and womens. you can ca
of tax rates we had under the clinton administration when the upper income earners were doing well and the entire economy was growing. we will have to make some tough choices. a balanced approach is the only approach i believe will get us there. >> your rebuttal? >> it is amazing to me that you can stand here, having voted for a trillion dollar deficits for the last four years, the largest, fastest debt increase in american history, can say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending over the last four years. with respect to cut, cap, and balance, it's amazing to me that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have, and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stopped funding in things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare, and education. that's why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. >> the race to succeed the retiring new mexico senator is just one of the key house, senate, and governor's races you
attacked 47% of americans, his company shipped jobs overseas, his plan cuts millionaires taxes, but raises yours. he'll voucherize medicare and make catastrophic cuts to education. so remember what romney said and what his name would do. >> paul: taking our name in vein, the 15th time, the wall street journal does not agree with any of the-- >> what do you think? >> this is a-- this is a distilled message (laughter) of the campaign. >> he keeps returning to this class warfare theme and this is in ohio and thinks the outsourcing, hitting the rich. 47% plays well with less educated white men in the midwest and where he's focusing ads. >> paul: is that really a good closing argument, dan? that's not an argument for the second term. >> it's not. and i honestly do not understand it, paul. it's -- i think it reflects barack obama's antipathy toward mitt romney? >> personal? >> i think so, he's been wanting to take him down from the beginning. and he's been running the same campaign from the beginning. and voters are out there still the economy the number one issue, waiting for the president to t
and that is by asking the wealthiest people and the largest corporations to start paying their fair share of taxes. i was talking about it gets us to solve that problem over a period of ten years. i thought ten years was too long basically. that was not an endorsement of every single item in the budget but the direction is going in, and whether or not i would support cutting if i supported that the budget i don't know. i have to look at the budget and see what cuts are necessary, but the most important point to remember is this. half of the budget is reform of the tax code to get the economy flat in the tax rates, lower the rates or on the base deutsch a trillion dollars of credits and the major corporations might take advantage to get the economy going and get revenues back up, get people back to work and you have less need for these programs and if it was to save the country to do it in a responsible way. >> i will get to it in a moment i'm not putting your words in your mouth. i want to understand in the short term over the next year or two would you cut the liheap funding of? diamondstone: if i w
president obama talks she discusses the u.s. economy and tax policy. >> hi, everybody. it has now been four years since the crisis that began on wall street spread to main street, hammering middle-class families and costing our economy 9 million jobs. since then, we have fought our way back. our businesses have added more than 5 million new jobs. the unemployment rate has fallen to the lowest level since i took office. home values are rising again. and assembly lines are humming once more. to make sure america never goes through a crisis like that again, we passed tough new wall street reform to end taxpayer funded bailout for good. all for reform also created the first ever in the pan a consumer watchdog, who sold job is to look out for you. that means making sure that you have all the information that you need to make import financial decisions like buying a home, were paying for college. and it means going after anyone who tries to take advantage of you or rip you off. but starting this month, that includes the folks who come up with your credit score. if you have not checked your credit
they have to pay, we pay more to government than any other major country in the world. the corporate tax rate is down to 25% in europe. ours is 35%. canada brought the tax rate down to 15%. businesses go there to save money. what i will do is bring the corporate tax rate from 35% to 25%. now, you might think -- [applause] >> same time, we'll have to get rid of loopholes and extensions and we need the revenue we need. but we need to bring the rates down and make ohio a more interesting place to invest. small business doesn't pay the corporate tax rate. it is 35%. i want to bring down the individual rate as well. thoseen -- i'll make proposals to congress on day one. things i do -- we will put america on track for a balanced budget. we can't keep spending more money -- [applause] >> what we talk about, these topics like big government policy -- they effect the lives of individual americans. this is about you and your life. say you are a senior -- i see a senior waving. i meant senior by age, not senior in high school. let's say you are a 65 year old or older. and when you -- when you get a
the opposite of what obama claims he's going to do. that is he's lowered taxes and closed budget deficits. but i actually find the trust argument very odd. because president obama promised that we would have 4.2% economic growth right now.wo we have 2%. he promised an unemployment rate that would be far below where it is today. he hasn't delivered on his promises. on the issue of trust, what is going on with regard to libya? i mean here we have an extraordinary thing where the president comes out on friday and says i directed that everything possible should be done to aid our embassy under attack. that attack went on for seven hours, we now know that secretary of defense saying he denied requests for help over that seven hours. where is the leadership. it's a trust issue. >> on the economy, how does it tip the scales, david brooks and ej dionne in the final nine days? >> i think this has been the worst campaign i've ever covered. i think they're both ending on the same note they started. obama is doing a negative campaign, he's got an ad out which is called "remember" which is about romne
of what obama claims he's going to do. he's lowered taxes and closed budge elt deficits. i find the trust comment hard. president obama promised we would have 4.2% economic growth right now. we have 2%. he promised an unemployment rate lower than we have. on the issue of trust, what is going on with regard to libya. we have an extraordinary thing where the president comes out on friday and says i directed that everything possible should be done to aid our embassy under attack. that attack went on for seven hours. secretary of defense saying he denied requests for help over that seven hours. >> we'll get to that later. >> but it's a trust issue. >> on the economy, how does it tip the scales, david brooks? >> i think it's been the worst campaign i have ever covered. they are both ending where they started. obama doing a negative campaign. he's got an ad out about romney and the flip-flop and what we have heard. it's almost pure negativity. romney is trying to appeal to moderates and women, which is a bipartisan ad saying i don't care if it's a republican or democrat idea, i'm for that. you
with the increase taxes that we would see, do you reversed. as well as the deep defense cuts, which is something that would really impact the area dramatically. george mason and stephen fuller, one of the preeminent economists in our area said the defense cuts could cause a recession in virginia and almost double the unemployment numbers. bridget has been several -- rigid has been scary -- very successful in having a low unemployment rate. jobs is the number one priority. that is why we are very courageous that the numbers of supporters in for mitt romney this year. >> does your canada have to win the county to win virginia? guest: i don't know we have to, i expect we will. it was only a narrow margin that president obama won loudoun, the last time and it really was an aberration. virginia republicans have been winning loudoun county in 2009 when governor bob mcdonnell won this area, and then in 2010, of course our congressman frank wolfe, he is extremely popularhe is of course on the ticket this year. he always wins resoundingly. in 2011, we swept all of the state and local seats here in this y
go away. we would be able to tax it. if you look at the states that have medical marijuana in this country it is now understood that the marijuana legalization is helping lift those committees out of their own recessions. >> is it time to end the prohibition? >> yeah, i think that should be respected. i have had the occasion to hear from the sponsor of that bill who has now passed away. but i think everyone is familiar with people who are surfing from terrible diseases and pain and the legislature here has proved that with the obvious safeguards. i think there has got to be a way to accommodate the medicinal use of marijuana. >> would you remove marijuana from schedule one? >> i don't know if that's the only way to do it but if it is then yes. >> the governor has asked the federal government to do. mr. doherty how do you feel about continuing the prohibition of marijuana? >> you're talking about the drug wars and the violence associated with drug wars. and superintendent of the police before i retired we took down the largest seizure of cocaine. >> you made a career out of
, you know, keep the tax rates low and no tax hikes so that makes us, in a weird way, backed into a corner defending the 1 #%. that makes us look like we defend the special interests. neil: if that's the case, and, i mean, i know you argue it's not true, come back at say, well, why are you taking money from the same group that is last time we checked the 1%. >> it's the obama spin. a lot of teem -- a lot of people are not like you into the news. everybody catches glimpses, short 30-second 1-minute adds, and they thin that obama -- neil: they can see pot meet kettle; right? they can see hi hypocrisy; righ? >> they can. i think this happened with libya. they are seeing, wow, you are not here to protect this. the policies really do not work. i don't think the people are neil: interesting to me, and don't cast on anyone, but if you make it a point and call the other guy a bs in "rolling stopes," make your you're not. be that as a may, a lot of money in the race. do you think mitt romney will be the billion dollar man? >> oh, absolutely. neil: where is the money going? >> on ads.
to nothiprognosticati melber, neera tanden, kate ton dawson. let's start with the tax plan. if there is something i believe mitt romney is invested in doing, it is the tax plan. he claims it is revenue neutral. >> you have to claim certain things. this goes for both sides. there is this thing called business cycle. this is what we study. in a free market economy, recessions and recoveries, upswings and down swings are part and parcel of the world we live in. when you look at how budgets are proposed, off of the congressional budget office projection. they are not that realistic. in 2014, 2015, 2016, they are projected real gdp growth of 4.4%. sounds pretty good. how realistic is it? if you take a look at reality, what's happened since the beginning of the century? gdp has grown at 1.7% and we know we are in a pretty sluggish economy. there is a huge disconnect between what's proposed and what's going on outside this window? >> that's the big deal. the claim is, i'm going to go in and cut taxes. don't worry, cutting taxes is going to be stimulative. we are going to end up with way more jobs and ther
. they register under the tax code 501 c 4. the organizations that are primarily about educating people about issues or policy options and things like that but they're allowed to do some political activity. it can't be the main thing they're about. but they are permitted to be in politics. and now because ofthe decisions from 2010 that are so famous they can be more specific in the way they're involved. the things that define the elections are -- because they're mainly about enl indicating people have been able to do that -- educating people and not mainly about elections, they have been able to do that without disclosing the sources of the money that they've gotten. so tense or hundreds of millions of dollars being spent without us knowing where it actually came from. host: let's go to our democrats line. caller: what i would like to say about this money, i feel like this money is basically it's generations of money which a lot of elderly white people have built up over time when the system was discriminatory. now they have come out and decided to buy an election. this money is not taxed or
californians to support a tax hike. governor brown spent this week campaigning nonstop for prop 30 which would raise sales tax a quarter cent and state income taxes on the rich. and as we speak, some of your neighbors are joining the fight. cbs 5 reporter aiolis is a hairington is in oakland where democrats have a phone bank to urge voters to vote yes on prop 30 and no on prop 32. >> reporter: as november 6th approaches volunteers are making a final push to get people to the polls. inside the democratic party headquarters here in oakland volunteers are taking part in the statewide day of action and pope bank. on the phones since 10:00 a.m. calling democrats across the state asking them to vote yes on prop 30 and no on prop 32. prop 32 would ban unions from using payroll deducted found for political -- funds for political purposes. prop 30 hikes the state sales tax by a quarter cent. the 30 doesn't pass schools and colleges face $6 billion in cuts. governor brown has been traveling across the state shoring up support but recent polls show that -- polls show that support is fading. now there's 4

are right. governor kasich is right that his policies fundamentally different than obama's, lower taxes, close the budget deficit. make, create a regulatory environment that encourages investment and certainty. that those are improving the situation. governor romney is also, however, correct that there's a long way to go. and that there are lots of people in ohio and elsewhere around this country who are unemployed or underemployed and we have huge progress. and 2% gdp growth is nothing to crow about. in fact it's less growth than in 2011 and less than 2010. >> all the economic news is about republican policies and all the bad economic news is because of democratic policies? it's funny, it's just disingenuous. >> how much of this is a problem in terms of how people feel, rachel. we see more economic optimism in the country and yet people are still feeling like the obama record is lackluster and you look at the recovery still not feeling like it's robust enough. >> and you see it just in the raw consumer confidence numbers. you see consumer confidence trending up and the unemployment rat
taxes, cut regulations, and run up the debt. that isn't going to work. president obama is of course making the case, over this last nine days, about what he'd do if he is handed a second term and he would build on the successes of the last four years. now, he strapped the president into a plane heading to the ground at mach speed and he's righted the plane and we have lift and we are headed in the right direction and he deserves a second term. >> chris: senator portman let me have you weigh in both, on the obama agenda, for a second term, and his record, and, also, questions about romney's record and whether it simply returns to the policies of george w. bush. >> chris, it is simple. why governor romney is doing better in ohio. people are focused on the economy and jobs, and, mitt romney has a plan that is pro-growth and pro jobs to turn this thing around and, obama doesn't and when people look at the last four years they are disappointed, they must be. look, we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression. and, there are 22 million americans strugglin
to the kind of tax rates we had under the clinton administration when those upper income earners were doing well and the entire economy was growing. we are going to have to make some tough choices and a balanced approach is the only approach i believe will get us there. >> heather, your rebuttal? >> it's amazing to me congressman heinrich that you can stand here having voted for a trillion dollar deficits for the last four years, the largest debt increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending over the last four years and with respect to cut gap and balance it's amazing to me also this idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare and education and that is why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. e. republican congre
. only higher taxes on capital as well as on labor. that's a bad mix. >> so that's the answer that the republicans are putting forward. fiscal and government restraint will kick up your gdp growth to the extent you'll create more jobs. ken, do you buy that? >> well, i -- looks to me like their plan is to cut taxes. you hope you get really fast growth. i think the deficit would go up a lot for a while. we would get growth. but i'm not sure it would be anything like we saw under reagan. there is so much debt out there. there is so many headwinds. there's europe, the a administration would do less on cutting taxes if at all and probably raise spending. that's really where the difference is between the two. one of them wants a smaller government. one of them sees the government doing more things. that's a big difference. >> you know more than i do. quick answer, do you think either of them will get the 12 million jobs in four years that they're promising? >> it would be a very good outcome. i think it's a long shot, frankly. >> your answer is smarter than mine. i said i'd wear a d
reduced taxes, and eliminate the death tax in ohio. the has been the biggest job trend in ohio and anywhere else in the nation. i think the governors are leading the change effort in this country, and have to continue to do that. but the federal government has been an impediment, in many cases, through its regulations and its headwinds. many in the state have predicted them from creating the jobs necessary in this country to push our economy and improve the economy over the next four years. host: breaking news this morning. we have been talking about the jobs numbers coming out today. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8%, the unemployment rate, from september. showing 171,000 jobs added in october, this according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick, and it was down the month before. but unemployment is staying basically around 8%. if you count the people of -- who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are
ma close held over the republicans and they didn't blink. >> he wants to pressure a tax increase or defense cuts and the thinks, understandably, -- he hopes they'll go for a tax -- democrats were willing to risk some domestic spending cuts. so, kim, how is this playing on the campaign trail? mitt romney is trying to make hay with this defense issue in states like virginia, new hampshire, and ohio. >> and that is unfortunate for the president and they have been worried about that, which is why the administration was advising defense companies not to send out legally required layoff notices which were due to hit before the election because they werewide bet the fallout in places like virginia, new hampshire, north carolina has a big defense industry. and you're seeing mitt romney now running ads, talking about the sequester, laying this back on the white house's lap. you're seeing senate candidates, like george allen, hitting this very hard and this is not necessarily helping the white house on at the trail right now. >> you think this is a winner for romney. >> to the extent it ha
will -- expansion wi. i guess my point is that many low income families don't file taxes. so the information that is -- because they're not required to, not because they're out of compliance. but they may not be required to file taxes. so snap information may be available in a way that you can fast track their medicaid eligibility because they provided recent information to the snap agency. so i don't think that that really, um, complicates the opportunities for coordinating between nap and medicaid significantly. >> thank you very much. i am going to give our panelists an opportunity if any of you have closing remarks that you'd like to jump in with before we wrap it up, or -- okay. well, thank you all very much for coming.
